There are many ways to fence your home. You can opt for a stone wall, timber fence, steel posts or metal sheets. Metal sheets are more common when it comes to roofing. However, sheets designed for roofing compare just as well as any other fencing option listed above. In fact, metal sheet fencing may be better placed on your home if you are looking for any of the qualities listed below.
Metal sheets provide a high level of visual protection from anyone outside your premises. Unlike steel fences that have glaring gaps or picket fences that only rise about a metre high, metal sheets measure about 5-6 feet high. This means you get to enjoy maximum privacy in your home. Whether you're out in the front yard playing or relaxing in your garden, no one will have a direct line of sight as to what you're doing within the confines of your home. Metals can be a great option if you have security concerns or are covering a fence that is close to your housing structure. They are also great for other personal areas such as walls next to the swimming pool.
Variety in design & aesthetics
Of all the roofing options available, metal sheets are the easiest to customize in terms of color. This is because they offer flat, even surfaces that can be easily painted over to feature whatever theme you want for your home. When purchasing, you also get to choose between multiple color codes. If your fence is old and has deteriorated, a fresh coat of paint is all it will take to bring it back to new again. Color aside, you also get to choose other aesthetic options such as the physical design. You can go for a flat fence, ridged, wavy or one with multiple lines.
Last but not least, metal fencing is highly durable. Roofing metal sheets, for example, last an average 40-70 years depending on the weather and maintenance. Your fencing metal sheets are made of the same steel material and can last just as long. Besides that, metal sheets are not easily affected by moisture or pests the same way timber is. With very little maintenance, your metal sheet fencing can easily last as long as your home.
If you are looking to install a sturdy security fence, remember you can always reinforce your metal sheets with timber or steel posts. For more information, contact a business such as Alto Industrial Agencies.
